Amplified fluorescence quenching of a conjugated polyelectrolyte mediated by Ca2+.


The fluorescence of conjugated polyelectrolytes (CPEs) is quenched with very high efficiency by small molecule quenchers. This effect has been referred to as amplified quenching. In the present communication, we demonstrate that aggregation of a poly(phenylene ethynylene)-type CPE (PPE-CO2-) induced by Ca2+ has a pronounced effect on the amplified quenching… (More)
